Bloomington HRA statutory authority updated

Deleting references to sections of law repealed in 1987 and making it clear Bloomington is governed by the general statute that covers housing and redevelopment authorities across the state is the goal of a new law.

In 1971, Bloomington was one of the first cities authorized to have a housing and redevelopment authority. Six years later the law was amended to, in part, add a section specific to the housing and redevelopment authority of the city of South St. Paul.

Statutory language governing housing and redevelopment authorities was updated and recodified in 1987; however, language from the 1971 and 1977 laws remains.

Sponsored by Rep. Steve Elkins (DFL-Bloomington) and Sen. Melissa Wiklund (DFL-Bloomington), the law takes effect upon local compliance with the requirements for special laws.
